The 19th FINA World Championships will be remembered for the records and extraordinary results. More than 2600 athletes, nearly 500 medals awarded and many unforgettable moments.
The execution of the opening and closing ceremonies, despite the fact that they were made on a very tight budget, were spectacular and memorable. It was an innovation that a live band led the athletes during the announcement of the results. “Make history” – that was the motto of the world championships, and the athletes certainly grew up to it. The event saw three world records, four world championship records and two European records beaten in the Duna Arena, while another one of the latter record was equalled. We’re sure that the smooth arrangement helped the process as well.
